Under Your Honor's April 11, 2013 Order (Doc. 1303), last night at a regularly scheduled meeting, the District Council's Delegate Body voted to ratify the fully executed collective bargaining agreement ("CBA") between the District Council and the Association of Wall-Ceiling & Carpentry Industries of New York, Inc. (Doc. 1271 and Doc. 1272). The Delegates ratified the CBA by a roll call vote of 48 in favor and 34 against.
By this letter, the District Council is requesting that Your Honor issue an Order modifying the Court's May 26, 2009 Order (Doc. 961) to provide for hiring ratios to be those in the ratified CBA so that the CBA may be implemented. As the Court has been advised by earlier submissions and at earlier conferences, the CBA provides for anti- corruption compliance enforcement provisions developed by the District Council in conjunction with the employer association, the Review Officer, and the government.
